As gymnast Jordan Miles mentally prepares to represent Team U.S.A. at the Tokyo Olympics, her mother is preparing to report to prison for allegedly stealing more than $1 million dollars.
Gina Chiles is set to check in to prison on July 27, the same day her daughter is competing for Team USA in the Olympic team final.
The U.S. District Court in Oregon has approved Chiles’ request for a 30-day delay, allowing her to report to federal prison after the Olympics Games.
Gina Chiles pleaded guilty to one count of wire fraud and was sentenced to federal prison for one year and one day.
According to court documents, she ran Inspire Vision Property Management LLC, a commercial properties management business. The documents say that she admitted to stealing from her clients and said she spent thousands of dollars on personal expenses.
Federal Court papers say one client, Karla Pearlstein, lost $945,000 after renting the Victorian Belle Mansion in North Portland, Missouri, to Gina Chiles to run as a wedding venue.
Pearlstein, who helped Gina Chiles start Inspire Vision, now describes her as “somebody that has absolutely no shame. She is an operator. I mean, she was a total operator.”
When she gets out of prison, she’s ordered to being paying 1.2 million in restitution.
